Hey all, I'm new to the forum and just digging into stop motion a bit more now. I recently had a camera upgrade to use for normal videos and I've been trying to use that for stop motion as well. The…Continue

"Nick, I only partially answered your question in my long post. I don't think you would have to mess about with different sizes, for the simple reason that you are not exporting anything and the pages in DR are fully linked. So you would use the…"

"I am doing very similar things, and it bugs me to have to import and export shots between programs, as this is where quality gets lost. As far as I know Davinci Resolve addresses this issue by providing a complete suite of tools within a single…"

"I need to do different things to different shots, and want to put the HD shot into the edit as I finish each shot, so I doubt I will be importing them once as large jpegs and doing everything there in Fusion.  For some, I do the rig removal in…"

"I'm having a zoom chat with Hans on Friday, as he clearly knows a great deal about all this. I think you are right that Fusion is also daunting. Most of the problems are about where to find the wretched button that does X, and the only way to…"

"One thing to remember to get a good key is to make sure that your project is set to work in floating-point. That means that your imagery is calculated at the highest possible bit depth. And in a non-destruktive workflow. It simply gives a lot more…"

"Hah!  I've been struggling with AE for about 15 years and have learned very little, and can't seem to retain it, so getting competent in a year and a half is better than I can do.   So it wasn't your explanation that was at…"

"Sorry if I am confusing. It was sort of an answer to your point 11. You grab a background plate from the assets imported into AE and place it as a layer underneath the one you have keyed. The whole composition, including both layers, can then be…"

"Thanks for the explanation Simon, which I don't understand a word of!  I find everything about AE is awkward (including the fact that using the forward and back arrows, as I do in every other program to move to the next frame, instead…"

"I'm sure the same thing can be done in Davinci Resolve's Fusion, which is what I am trying to learn just now. The layer stack is created in AE just by dragging an asset onto the timeline stack area. Then you can grab one and drag it up or…"

"Sounds like a good trick Simon!  Now, if only I knew how to make a mask in AE...  or layers... i really only use AE as a last resort for those things I just can't do anywhere else.  I'm sure there are YouTube tutorials for…"

""values are the same..."  Just wondering, could that mean the the average colour values are the same, so when a new colour came in, it adjusted to keep the average the same? What happens if you import the raw frames into After Effects…"

Issue with camera setting or editing?

Hey all, I'm new to the forum and just digging into stop motion a bit more now. I recently had a camera upgrade to use for normal videos and I've been trying to use that for stop motion as well. The new camera is a Sony A7rIII with a Sony FE 24-70mm F2.8 GM Lens.I use Dragonframe for my shoots and set all settings as they are recommended for this camera on the Dragonframe support page. So the issue is that when I try to edit the photos in Lightroom before I progress to premier+after effects,…See More
